 it's an amazing act of stage magic white supremacy has
 pulled, to transfer it's values and norms to "artificial
 intelligence" and then, because they successfully taught
 a computer to be racist (congrats i guess?) pretend that
 it is now neutral and objective and unassailable

 assorted troublemakers
 @quatoria
 like, teaching a facial recognition system to make
 judgements based on
 posting those same BS eugenics into a screed on
 livejournal in that the output of both procedures is
 identically unsound garbage - but one is called
 "objective"
 eugenicist BS is *exactly* like

Being Alone, America, and Internet: Barack Obama @BarackObama Michelle and I grieve with all the families in El Paso and Dayton who endured these latest mass shootings. Even if details are still emerging, there are a few things we already know to be true. First, no other nation on Earth comes close to experiencing the frequency of mass shootings that we see in the United States. No other developed nation tolerates the levels of gun violence that we do. Every time this happens, we're told that tougher gun laws won't stop all murders; that they won't stop every deranged individual from getting a weapon and shooting innocent people in public places. But the evidence shows that they can stop some killings. They can save some families from heartbreak. We are not helpless here. And until all of us stand up and insist on holding public officials accountable for changing our gun laws, these tragedies will keep happening Second, while the motivations behind these shootings may not yet be fully known, there are indications that the El Paso shooting follows a dangerous trend: troubled individuals who embrace racist ideologies and see themselves obligated to act violently to preserve white supremacy. Like the followers of ISIS and other foreign terrorist organizations, these individuals may act alone, but they've been radicalized by white nationalist websites that proliferate agencies and internet platforms need to come up with better strategies to reduce the influence of these hate groups on the internet. That means that both law enforcement But just as important, all of us have to send a clarion call and behave with the values of tolerance and diversity that should be the hallmark of our democracy. We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don't look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people. Such language isn't new it's been at the root of most human tragedy throughout history, here in America and around the world. It is at the root of slavery and Jim Crow, the Holocaust, the genocide in Rwanda and ethnic cleansing in the Balkans. It has no place in our politics and our public life. And it's time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much clearly and unequivocally. 3:01 PM 8/5/19 Twitter for iPhone 5,046 Retweets 14.6K Likes Eloquently said.
